  1. Amélie Nothomb (4)
  2. Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o (5)
  3. Patrick White (3)
  4. Murakami Haruki (2)

     After a couple of months that saw a rise in year-to-year traffic numbers at the complete review, things slowed in April, to last year's levels.
     Not much movement on or off the list -- though good to see interest in the Énard hanging on.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 lists.
